Because of our move from the city of Lansing to the far end of a southern suburb and because of no easy access to freeways, we decided to give Trinity Church in Lansing a try. For eight years, we had attended Ada Bible Church on the east side of Grand Rapids where we faithfully made the 50-mile trip each way every weekend.
As we--my wife and I--get to the end of another year, we are carefully evaluating what we have done this past year and what we want to change next year. Church is right on the top tier of our list.
What factors should we plug into our decision-making? By going to Trinity we have a 15-minute ride. That's certainly a consideration. Are we growing closer to God because of attending this nearby church? What else?
